Season 2013 has come to an end for me and I wanted to write a short blog about it.
First of all, to everyone – THANK YOU SO MUCH for all the support you have been giving me, not just this year, but through all the years. It is something that makes a huge difference in each day! Seeing and feeling that people believe in you is just one of the greatest gifts a tennis player can receive. For that I will be forever grateful.
As I mentioned a couple of times before, this season didn’t start as I was hoping, it started with an injury. The goal was to get back on track as soon as possible, reach the US Open main draw and slowly start climbing back towards the numbers on the ranking where I once already was. I think the way everything worked out at the end it was just great. I am very happy with the tennis I showed in Asia, especially in Beijing and am already looking forward to the preparation!
But first.. It is time to rest and heal my body and mind properly, get away from the courts for a couple of weeks and do all the things I’m not able to do during the season!
The most important one is spending time with my family and friends! I missed them so much, especially during the last two trips, US and Asia.
One of the brightest moments this year was that I had a chance to play doubles with Lisa Raymond. Unfortunately I got injured in Asia, so we couldn’t really finish the last two tournaments we played, but I definitely enjoy the time we’ve spent on court together – practice and especially matches!
She is a great champion and a true role model, that’s why I am very grateful for this opportunity.
I haven’t really decided yet where I will be doing my preparation for the next season, but I promise I will keep you updated.
I’ll write about my free time in the next weeks, so keep checking in on the news!!
Again, thank you very much everyone! For the support and kind messages!
